Activist, Harrison Gwamnishu who shared a video of the boy in chains, stated that the victim lost his mother at birth and has been living with his father and stepmother who subject him to inhumane treatment.

Reports have it that the father and the stepmother chained the little boy on Sunday July 4th and went out for a function - it was the neighbors who raised an alarm, called a welder and rescued the boy.

Harrison says the boy has been handed over to the state Ministry of Women Affairs.

This case comes few days after the video of a woman flogging a young boy and throwing him into a dog cage surfaced online.
